Hawaiians celebrate the attainment of statehood in this newsreel story with flag-waving, festivals, and, of course, hula dancing. This is pretty much what youd expect, though they also throw in a Cold War jab at the Commies for good measure.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
